About Us

Since 1987, Santa Fe Rafting has safely guided thousands down the Rio Grande. Our boatyard is conveniently located in the center of Santa Fe on Cerrillos Road where we have plenty of free, secure parking.

Forgot your sunscreen? The Santa Fe Rafting store has sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and award-winning t-shirts for sale.

All our guides are trained in basic first aid and CPR and trips on the Taos Box always include a certified Swiftwater Rescue Technician. Many of our guides have a higher level of medical training. This includes Emergency Medical Technician and/or Wilderness First Responder. All SFR guides are well trained on the various sections of river they guide.

Russell Dobson has owned and operated Santa Fe Rafting Co. since 1987. He has been rafting the Rio Grande commercially for over twenty five years.
